Landfilling is one of the most responsible actions of a waste management procedure, which even puts our existence at risk. And there are ways to reduce landfilling by recycling, upcycling, reusing, and composting. At Viagreen, we put our effective efforts into landfill diversion by minimizing the amount of rejected waste. We make on-site composting to encourage real-time monitoring of waste to reduce the quantity of mixed waste as quickly as possible.
At Viagreen, we tie-up with various NGOs for community activities, such as beach clean-up. Along with the support of NGOs for the past two years, we are conducting beach cleaning programs for Mahim & Dadar beaches. We all know that the litter that ends up in the ocean harms marine life, damaging and degrading habitats. So, we take the initiative to clean and recycle litter to make seas pollution-free as far as we can.
Marine debris, commonly plastics, is one of the most dangerous global threats to the ocean's health. With citizens getting aware of marine life and so many volunteers hitting the beach to clean the ocean and sea waste, ViaGreen intends to create a community Beach waste collection and landfill diversion data.
A waste audit is a systematic procedure to review operations and waste generation. The procedure will define the composition of waste by examining the materials that have been discarded or thrown away. The main purpose is to determine, measure, and analyze waste generated in functional places such as cafeterias, restaurants, common places, and others. Therefore, at ViaGreen we provide a complete analysis of waste in the bin. To understand the waste stream properly of the organization. ViaGreen specializes in conducting a waste audit, especially for bulk waste generators.

The CUP Recycling process
- First, the cups are collected on-site.
- Then cups get sorted and baled by waste contractors.
- After this process cups are sent to the recycling facility.
- Here, the cups get pulped first with water.
- Then the plastic lining gets removed from the fibers in this pulping process. And the plastic waste is sent to CEMENT KLIN (Alternative to coal).
- Moreover, the fiber is ultimately used to make new paper products.
- And the best benefit is that paper products are reusable after recycling.
